The Mounties arresting five men and a woman after a search at two marijuana dispensaries operating illegally in Moncton.

Codiac RCMP searched two dispensaries on Mapleton road and pot was seized in both locations.

All six people arrested at the scene were released with court dates.

They range in age from 19 to 56 and many are from the Moncton area.

The RCMP are working to determine who the supplier of the drug pointing out it is  illegal and unregulated.

Sgt. Louis Robichaud says there is no legal mechanism that allows for  medical marijuana dispensaries to sell cannabis to the public.

He goes on to say the products they sell are unregulated which is dangerous for any customers because they can't be sure of the contents or quality of the product they are using.
